Interaction with Guests
We are a retired Canadian couple, who have their own residence on the same floor, so are always present to receive guests. Having been hotel owner-operators for 2 decades in Costa Rica, we offer all the travel and re-location assistance that may be requested, while guaranteeing the privacy of our guests. Their sole comfort is our goal!
Our residential neighborhood is one of the most prestigious of the capital, broad, tree-lined streets, well-guarded and well-kept. Two blocks from the largest and most animated of the city's urban parks, offering all kinds of cultural, sports and fitness options.
Situated on several public bus routes to shopping malls and to downtown, near the urban railway line; 20 minutes to the international airport; taxi stations on several corners around the park. The Hop-on Hop-off city tour bus stops just across the park.
Other Things to Note
The Residence is dedicated to the serious, the quiet, and the respectful. Perfect for short or extended-stay vacations, for work or study, for dental-medical tourism.
Pets are not allowed in the building, nor are un-registered overnight guests.
This was our second time staying with Alexis and James. It was very convenient, clean, and a great place to stay. We were able to return our rental car right in their garage, and they offered to help coordinate anything they could help us with.
Alexis and James were great. They picked us up at the airport and were very flexible in general. Alexis helped us plan our trip and rent a car, which was great because we landed with almost no plan for our 10 days in Costa Rica. The house is in a nice area that is safe, though we did not spend very much time in San Jose.
My stay at La Paz in San Jose was excellent!! Alexis and James are excellent host and very helpful in making our visit worth while. The accommodations are nice and clean.
B & B La Paz was simply amazing. They communicated well, and welcomed us with open arms upon our arrival. The room was clean and cozy. The balcony made for a romantic evening. My only complaint is that I wish I could have stayed longer. The rest of the apartment was spacious, clean, and very well decorated. Simply a smart and charming layout throughout! I would definitely recommend B & B La Paz to travelers staying in CR.
Also....James was nice enough to take me to the airport for an extremely reasonable since the driver they normally use was not available.
Fantastic airbnb experience! James and Alexis were not only welcoming, but extremely helpful during our stay in Costa Rica. If you need a ride to/from the airport I highly recommend having James drive. It makes the experience stress free and he gave us some good tips to get through the airport smoothly.
The rooms are basic and the bed is comfortable. The kitchen area is well stocked with the tools to make a meal. Everything is tidy and clean, I highly recommend a stop here if you're staying in San Jose.
James and Alexis were such helpful and welcoming hosts!! They gave us all necessary information to move around San Jose and about Costa Rica, which made our stay that much more easy. James even help us to get to the bus station at 2am! Their place is spacious and very well equipped in a very quiet and secure neighbourhood. Very easy to get to Central San Jose, with supermarkets nearby. Definitely recommended!!!
Elegant surroundings with gracious hosts made this stop more like a four star hotel than just a place to stay. We appreciated the kitchen extras like salt, sugar and oil to use when preparing meals.
Easy assess to buses made it easy to see the city sites. Hosts frequently wandered through guest areas to make sure your stay was perfect. I wanted to move in, not on.
If you are staying over a Sunday, you may want to visit the art gallery located in the old airport building, as it free that day. Paddle boating was fun too.
